Genital Herpes is a very catchy sexually transmitted disease (STD). The disease is caused by the herpes simplex virus (HSV), the two types of which – HSV-1 and HSV-2 – affect areas on and around the genitals and around the mouth (HSV-1). The most common symptoms include itching, reddening, pain, sores and blisters.
The virus gets into your body through microscopic breaks of the skin or via mucous membranes during a sexual intercourse. Both men and women run the risk of getting Genital Herpes. Not infrequently, it takes as little as one unprotected sexual contact to become infected.
Genital Herpes virus may stay dormant inside your body for a long time. Many people are unaware they are infected, because there are often no symptoms, or they seem too mild and therefore pass unnoticed. This is what makes Genital Herpes dangerous.
So far, there is no cure against either Genital Herpes. However, there are medicines, by aid of which you can reduce the recurrent symptoms pretty fast. Today’s pharmaceutical market also offers unique homeopathic medicines that have proven effective against Genital Herpes symptoms. Medicine should be picked up with the help of a qualified specialist.
